There's this method of child discipline (I forget the title of the method) where one will ignore the child completely, especially when the child is doing something specifically for attention. It has its obvious pros and cons, but I favor it in dealing with my younger siblings, who will often do or say outrageous (to them) things in an effort to get my attention.
But I'm sorry, that's completely unrelated to the George and Constance discussion. I don't know why, but I felt like I had to say that about now....
I touched on this earlier at the end of my small essay post when Dan decided to post before me and negate my entire reasoning for the choices that were made at last night's gathering but it DOES make sense that they would cross the two characters to unify the story throughout the ride. I don't know why I didn't make that connection myself...I guess I was too caught up in my reasoning for why they made choices at face value alone.
I declare that should we all meet up--a hopeful eventuality--we all need to wear fake mustaches. Especially DarkLady, DarkFairy, and myself (and the other numerous females who post here) who will all rock facial hair harder than the men will.
